D - dig 0.0.14 and dmd 0.69 problems

reply "Lars Ivar Igesund" <larsivi stud.ntnu.no> writes:
It seems to me that dig hasn't been updated for
dmd 0.69.

In the digc files, strings are represented with ' ', which
don't compile. r" " must be used since there er slashes
there. There are also other problems with character
literals like \n (which don't work with D, but they should
methinks).

I looked at the errors in digc, but in the end, I didn't get
it to compile.

And that continues with DIDE not being able to compile the project. It can compile a single .d file. Maybe I should try the full version? Could someone make dig(c) available in binary form? Metta, Alen

Just in case ppl in my uni decide to shut down the servers, you can go here:
http://earth.prohosting.com/carlos3/dig.html. However, dig.zip won't
download properly using tools like DAP and such (or so it seems), and/or
using netscape. It works just fine with ie6 w/o downloading tools.

Thanks for doing this, Carlos! I downloaded your modified dig, and it did indeed fix the string literal problem. There is one hangup, though. For some reason the dig\makefile does not work as is in your zipfile. For some reason your makefile is different than the original. A simple change: BASEDIR = c:\ to BASEDIR = c: ... and everything compiled just fine. Later, John

Yes, unless there's a Linux version of DIG -- I wish! :D Are you sure you're using at least dmd 0.69? Better check the version on that just in case. It won't recognize the new `` string literals that Carlos modified in DIG, otherwise. If the "unsupported char" error is fixed, it should get through everything else. The current DIDE still doesn't work with 0.70 DMD as far as I know. I was using the command line makefile to build it. John

Hahaaa! You're right, of course. I never unpacked the 0.70 that I downloaded. I guess I was in a hurry at the time. :( So, after eliminating the backslash and *upgrading to 0.70* (didn't work with the previous version) everything compiles. This is a recommendation to include the notice and delete the '\' in the first line of makefile.

Doesn't matter. That's the point! ;) Though, I'm not quite fond of QT's license so I will look for some other multi-platform libraries. But Charles did a great job with dig, too! We might be able to use the controls available with Windows... Best, Alen

No, I'm not fond of QT's license either. DIG does show much promise. I'd like to see it ported over to linux somehow. What do you mean Charles did a great job with dig? I'm pretty sure it's all Burton Radons work. Later, John

What about DUI?

DUI it's comming along just fine, still working on it. There lots of new code implementing all of the gtk widgets (although some still incomplete or not tested). Most of the common callbacks are also in. I believe all the (major) problems are solved, I just need time to code every thing into DUI. The goal for now is to have all the gtk core widgets in. Threads and timers and atk lib, those things will be left for later. I'm getting ready for a new release (3) just want to create an auto config Makefile and compile it on w2k (probably the w2k will have to wait for relase 4). You can always get the latest version from the night build page. (probably better to get version 2 and them dump the night build over it). Some twiking will be necessary. I also started a very simple ide that helped me find some bugs. it's called 'leds' ('linux editor for D' or for window 'light editor for D') the 's' is a qualifier: for now means simple and superfluous. the idea is to use Scintilla and a D parser (maybe from dmd) to create a simple usefull tool. The inspiration was the simplicity of jext. Ant lobbying for: ;) - change this() to ctor(), ~this() to dtor() - inner classes with access to the outer class, not just nested.

I forgot about DUI! If it will work on both Linux and Windows that would be great. Although, I thought it was Linux only project since it was using GTK+. I know there is a GTK library for windows, but from what I here it is still buggy. I know the GIMP for windows uses it; but last I tried, it seems to have window redraw problems. I would think that it would be much better to hook into native window drawing calls for the Windows implementation. So how will the Windows version of DUI work? Will it use GTK+ or Native windows API?

Nice! I like the idea of having a Linux windowing toolkit so soon. And I think GTK+ is a great choice for the underlying interface for Linux. Are you using GTK+ 1.2 or 2.2? Keep up the good work! Later, John

GTK+, 100%. I dont believe DUI needs to know what OS is running.

GAIM uses GTK+ 2.2.2 on Windows, and while I've seen some bugs with tooltips staying around when the main window loses focus, that's been about it. And I use it a ton every day. I hope this bodes well for DUI for Win. BA

That's definitely good to hear. I haven't played with the most recent GTK+ version, myself. Does it allow the changing of "themes" on the window platform? I noticed all the screenshots at the GTK+ windows port sites showed the default ugly blocky theme. I don't like the stock theme provided in the windows gimp port either (same one, I think). There were no examples like the linux screenshots Ant provided. They have just got to provide a prettier default theme than that! Later, John

In case my poor handle of written English confuses someone, the last sentence inherited the characteristics of a misplaced modifier. I meant to say: The theme in Ant's demonstration screenshot was great. I don't like the default theme provided in the windows port of GTK. The Windows port people should provide a theme similar to the one Ant demonstrated.

Gaim comes with 3 additional themes for the windows version, so it is at least possible to change the looks of WinGTK programs. Lars Ivar
